Cineplay: The Kid (U) with Live Score + The School of Slapstick

  • Caedmon Hall, Gateshead Library Prince Consort Road Gateshead, England, NE8 United Kingdom (map)

Welcome to The School of Slapstick!

Children (and grown ups!) will have the chance to learn some physical comedy moves with our specially designed workshop from Circus Central. Choose props and costume then pose in our photobooth. You'll be slipping on banana skins, falling down and walking into walls!

Followed by a screening of The Kid. As Charlie Chaplin’s first feature as star, director, writer and producer celebrates its 95th anniversary we will introduce this timeless gem to a new generation. The 1921 moving, funny and affectingly personal The Kid will be screened with a live pianist.
